Melbourne International Comedy Festival acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live. We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' spirit, imagination and rich history of storytelling and humour that is an inspiration to all Australians.

We accept the invitation to walk together with First Nations people towards a more positive future for Australia, as described in the Uluru Statement From The Heart.

Emo Majok African Aussie

Emo Majok is bringing back his award-winning show, African Aussie, to Melbourne Comedy International Festival! 

Shortly after his debut at Edinburgh Fringe, Emo received the golden buzzer on Australia's Got Talent 2022 and went all the way to the finals. 

His tour in Canada included a sold out run at the Toronto Fringe, where he earned the Patron's Pick. 

His show canvases his life story, where he delves into his experiences of culture clashes, recounting his journey of adapting from a refugee camp in East Africa to immigrating to Australia. From humble beginnings, he now spends his days sharing his story with audiences worldwide.  

'Emo has shown strong abundant talent, and is undoubtedly a rising star.' ★★★★ Fringefeed 

'Emo has clearly found his true calling.' The Blurb

Strictly for audiences 18+
